is >> good morning to you. i am ainsley earhardt. >> i am heather nauert. thanks for watching fox and friends first. it is october the 3rd. >> it is the final count down to president obama and mitt romney tonight. the first presidential debate taking place in denver, colorado. peter doocy is here. we are going to get right to it. he is live for us in washington with a preview. good morning, peter. >> good morning, heather. vice president biden was down in charlotte north carolina yesterday talking about tax policies and the differences between democrats and republicans when he came out and said the middle class has been buried since president obama took office. >> this is deadly ernst. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class has been buried for the last 4 years. how in the lord's name can they justify it? >> now instead of focusing solely on tonight's denver the obama campaign is doing damage control even though the vice president changed had. some of the harm done once to the strong middle class republicans are taking the comments and running with it. >> vice presi
in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h
, though. >> dana: this morning i read the "new york post" and i noted he quoted president obama saying that line at the democratic national convention. i was going to bring it up in this segment. i didn't realize president obama said it again yesterday. you would think even stump speech that should be refreshed and keep up with the times. they are talking to multiple audiences at the same time. in this case, he is talking to the american troops, our allies, fighting with us. our enemy and directly to the american people. those messages aren't necessarily always going to be the same. but it seems careless to suggest that al-qaeda is on the wane if in fact your general last night on "60 minutes" is saying the opposite and we have evidence that al-qaeda was behind the attacks in libya. >> eric: andrea, the guy in the backseat of the cab with laura logan on "60 minutes" was a taliban commander who says he is working hand in hand with al-qaeda. they infiltrated the afghani police and military, people we're training. they're doing what is called green on blue violence, or insider attacks. ki
meetings about al-qaeda threat in north africa. according to the "washington post" this morning the obama administration has met several times in the last few months to talk about the terror group and whether the u.s. should launch strikes. the group has become more dangerous since gaining control of large pockets of territory in mali and getting its hands on weapons from post-revolution libya. remember folks were concerned about that. the discussions began before the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi apparently that left four americans dead. >> brian: we were reporting on that earlier than this. >> gretchen: amtrak train derails after colliding with a tractor-trailer, leaving at least 20 passengers injured. the train headed from oakland to bakersfield, california, when the truck blew through the crashing gate, hitting the train. three cars were knocked over and passenger, including a newborn baby, tossed around like rag dolls. >> it was the hardest thing. the seat in front of us was ripped out and fell on top of him. so i had to lift the seat up and dig under the debris and i found him i
days after a disappointing debate with mitt romney, president obama looked on the bright side of a merely modest jobs report for september. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> in his 15th stop in virginia this year and later his 14th trip to battle ground ohio, mr. obama painted a picture of an economy that may not be growing as fast as we like, but is at least going in the right direction. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy, just to try to score a few political points. >> but with the labor survey showing just 114,000 jobs created last month the reduced unemployment rate came from different survey showed a huge jump of people working part-time or from their homes. some called it an anomaly and former ceo jack welch says these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change numbers. >> and who is participating, who's not working and who's tried to work, but dropped out. all of these things. it just raises
: being a patriot means paying more. here with is a donor to obama campaign good morning to both of you. let me get your reaction. you are vocal about the so-called class warfare rhetoric. you support and fund raised for. did you hear more in the economic patriotism line >> no, the president toned down the rhetoric in terps of the divisiveness on taxes. i thought governor romney did a good job explaining the impact of what the tax on the top three percent of taxpayers who are generally maul business owners and employ 25 percent of the nation's employees. i thought that the president focused more on the difference between the two approaches in terms of how they would close the gap on spending. and the president wants to protect policies and programs and i think that that was a big difference between the two of them. >> gretchen: heather economic patriotism to me. does it mean if you don't agree with the president you are not a patriot and is that another way of talking about class warfare. >> coercion is not patriotism and tax rates are not about patriotism. there is differences in what
morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. students and journalism students. let me take your question. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. -- so many americans see the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in t

. please feel free to call us. >> good morning everyone. both candidates are gearing up for the first presidential debate. president obama will stay in nevada for the next few days to wrap up final preparations. he campaigned in las vegas last night to a group of 11,000 supporters and in an effort to manage his expectations said he's just an okay debater. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you will. >> i don't know about that. president romney is a good debater. >> that is in response to reports that romney is prepping and plans on taking jabs at the president. obama spokeswoman is saying don't expect the president to fire any blows and he looks forward to continuing his conversation with the american people. the president is traveling with a prep team, david axelrod anita dunn and senator john kerry. kerry is playing romney during the mock debates with the president. the team is hunkering down to get the president ready. romney is campaigning in denver today with a stop with the wings over the rockies museum. paul ryan is
. >> reporter: good morning. there were missed opportunities for president obama and mitt romney. wonky debate, in-depth policy talk. mitt romney came out very aggressive, very prepared, and put president obama on defense for most of the 90 minutes. president obama and mitt romney finally went head-to-head, right out of the gate, the candidates boiled down their economic arguments. >> governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. >> the president has a silar to the view he had whe rn an four years ago. if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> reporter: romney's comments about the 47% have taken a toll on his campaign. even before that leaked video polls showed americans think he favors the wealthy over the middle-class. he clearly wanted to try and change that perception. >> the people who are having a hard time right now are middle-income americans. under the president's policies, middle-income americans have been buried. t
thought, romney did pretty good. obama seemed pretty flat. watching the post-debate and some this morning, the romney performance went from here to here in the analysis. as someone who, if you want to or not, pushed back a little bit -- push back a little bit but keep in mind x. tell us how well the president did. >> or try to avoid it. >> first, i would like to thank charlie and the "national journal" for this event. i think both glen and i would agree, charlie is someone that both of us can trust because he plays it right down the line. >> i am also thin and handsome. >> i have to deal with the reality. [laughter] i like what glenn said. -- what glen said,. . the issue for governor romney was likability. i do not think he has -- i do not think he has had a lot of time to show likability. what he did last night was a single-minded focus on what his strength is and what the concern of the country is. i think he did his job. for all of us in this room who are probably not undecided, i think the campaign kickoff, i do not know, 2009. for a lot of us who are consumers of news and followers o
. jamie colby. bill: president obama playing the expectations game for wednesday night. chris christie is not pulling punches. why the new jersey governor predicts the race will start anew thursday morning. martha: the mother of one of the former navy seals killed in the benghazi consulate attack is demanding answers why the fbi has not started an investigation in benghazi. sent me a tweet @marthamccallum and we'll take up your questions. it's the little things in life that make me smile. spending the day with my niece. i don't use super poligrip for hold because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. [ charlie ] try zinc free super poligrip. that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of yo
morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in the debates this year. he kept his cool, his composure, he kept that sort of smile on his face and remained at least visibly unrattled by whatever happened, and when he had to do it and go on the attack he did it and we all remember the debate i guess it was in florida with newt gingrich where he basically took gingrich's pants off on the issue of what was in his investment portfolio and won that state by a big margin. this is obviously tk- different. it's a national audience, not a republican audience, he has to win people over. it's a different kind of challenge over a sitting president who is pretty smooth performer. what john roberts said is right, debates sometimes make a d
of the things i have heard people say this morning are correct. but i strongly believe that the reason we are in a downsized economy and situation now is because that has been the deliberate aim of the republican congress to prevent president obama from winning a second term. they admit that. there is another reason why they have projected for 2013 and beyond is downsized. that is because each of the members of the budget committee has signed that pledge of grover norquist to not under any circumstances increase or began a tax of any amount. the hands of congress are tied by that. host: what about your personal situation? of you changed your idea of the american dream? caller: i see it changing all around me. it has not affected me all that much because i am retired. host: thomas rights and that has a different perspective. we are looking at another tweet. the allstate national journal heartland monitor poll asked, what are signs of getting ahead? being free of debt is a sign of getting ahead. it also said being able to save it for a comfortable and secure retirement. having a secure job
pressure on the republican members of congress who seem only focused on one job, barack obama's. >> all right. debbi wasserman shultz, chairwoman of the democratic national committee. thanks for being on this morning. >> thanks, chuck. >>> the monthly auto sales numbers come out today. since the markets are just opening, let's get right to the market rundown. becky quick is here. if you're in the stock world and you live on the mountain or western time zone, you have to set an early alarm clock. >> you're not kidding. forget about the people who watch for the pacific time. these are people who are vampires. they don't come out in the light of day. they are there all the time. and this morning, it looks like the market is going to open a little higher. the dow and s&p were up for the first day of the quarter and for the month of october yesterday. we're seeing gains continue. part of that is what we're hearing out of europe. there are stories that spain may come and ask for a bailout sooner rather than later. that sounds more crazy, because they think the government needs help and the so
interview with bloomberg this morning. here is what he had to say about what he expects to see from president obama. >> president is not telling the truth about what we are proposing. he can't run his record so he has to distort mitt romney's record. he has to divide the country to distract the country to win by default. >> here is what you hear over and over again, distort the record. governor romney saying in a prior interview with "meet the press," the president wouldn't be truthful. what is your response to the romney campaign seeing mitt romney, seeing paul ryan predicting the president to be untruthful? >> that is an interesting talking point coming from candidates whose convention was based on a tripod of lies, talking about a welfare reform attack president clinton called false in the architect of welfare reform called false. blaming the president for the closure of a gm plant that was slated for closure during the previous administration. here are the facts. the $5 trillion tax plan that mitt romney and paul ryan put on the table, you can't pay for it without raising taxes
>> president obama wrapping up his rally in denver and meeting with the audience after his comments. we are opening up the phone winds, as we did all evening after the debate and all morning on "washington journal." here are the numbers for you. you can also follow us on facebook and on twitter. we are using hashtag #cspan2012. tom is on our republicans' line. what do you think of the debates last night and the president's comments this afternoon? >> hello? >> tom, go ahead. >> maybe it is because i tutor children in languages and math, but i was listening to the president and his speech today talk about how he is reducing the deficit by ending the war and nev -- war in afghanistan and using the money saved to bring down the deficit. the simple term for that is that we will no longer be spending money for that war. we will no longer be taking money pile up in one place and moving it to another. the use of language is very bad on this. it even was last night, when he spoke not from a prepared plan, but just from talking points. i found that when romney would offer something specific,
this morning, just two days before the candidates square off in their first debate. first the national picture. according to "the washington post"/abc news poll, 49% say they would vote for obama and 47% for romney. those numbers are unmoved from early last month. >> so nationally we're in the margin of error in this poll. >> all right. in the critical swing states, the president's lead grows to 11 points among likely voters. 52% to 41%. in ohio, a state where early in-person voting begins tomorrow -- >> wow! >> -- a new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president leading 51%-42%. in august that same poll had the two candidates tied at 45%. >> at 45%. if you want to know how badly things have gone over the past month for mitt romney, how bad september was for mitt romney, just look at the "the columbus dispatch" poll. he's lost nine points in ohio. it's absolutely critical that he does change the narrative, he does turn things around. you know, we always talk about -- i've always talked about 1980, the final weekend, it's tied between reagan and carter. this isn't 1980 anymore. he's got to ki
the mail this morning. the big question is who will win tomorrow's debate. president obama and mitt romney trying to down play expectations. joining us from washington to talk about it, democratic strategist donna brazil and anna navar navarro. abc "the washington post" poll, 55% of likely voters say president obama will compared to 31% who say romney will come out on top. it's pretty consistent with some earlier polling we've seen. donna, does it help or hurt the president that people are already going in thinking okay he's going to win this thing. >> that should reassure the president. i think he has to come across as confident tomorrow. he has a terrific record to tell the american people. mitt romney has been in dress rehearsal for this first debate now for five years. i suspect he'll be the more aggressive person tomorrow. but president obama should preempt any strike that mitt romney intends to aim at him, attack, attack, attack by hitting him with a very big question that could possibly knock him off his game plan and make him rely on those zingers that he's been working on. >> anna

obama -- i do not think he did as badly as the pundits are saying this morning. i think the next debates, he will probably have a different demeanor. i think the debate last night was much more important to miss -- to mitt romney and barack obama. i do not know how much this really changes the landscape, because this race is very competitive. if you look at the eight battleground states, depending on the polls, president obama is winning on all of them, but the margins are pretty close. i think the other thing that debates could do for the democrats and the president and also for the voters, for our side, too, it signals the date is on, and you will see much more enthusiasm. people talk about the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that
